Well, yeah lol. Just wanted to state that community had supported it (I'm a bureaucrat) to speed up things. Missed the discussion link, sorry lol. Nuno Tavares 13:29, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
so now i understand (see here), this ("your") bot account is meant to be used by more than one person, is that right nuno? oscar 23:28, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
Yes, and my support was just to state community approval, as moste english readers (from meta) won't understand the discussion around the approval of this bot: we had 3 users populating recentchanges for some days while creating "city" articles, which difficults monitoring of other non-automatic articles. Anyway, just removed it as in fact it might lead to misunderstandings. Nuno Tavares 11:50, 18 October 2005 (UTC)
meaning: you take back the request? oscar 11:15, 19 October 2005 (UTC)
No. The request is still up, of course. And my & communitty support is up as well, just took back my signature as you decided to complain about it. Please stop this nonsense conversation. 15:03, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

Do you have the consensous of the community? - Romihaitza 21:00, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
There was one "abstain" vote, all the rest were "for" votes. The single "abstain" seems to have been a requests for clarification (since clarified.) The English Wiktionary is a small project, compared to Wikipedia. --Connel MacKenzie 18:54, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

Fred Chess Bot

Request bot-flag on Swedish Wikipedia, ("sv"). See the bot's discussion page. See also sv:Wikipediadiskussion:Robotar. Requests have also been made on local burocrats such as sv:Användardiskussion:RomanNose#Ansökan_om_Bot-status, who told us he could not do it, and directed us here.

The bot already did a larger mainantance work on Swedish Wikipedia, and is the only bot to do this (many bots do smaller things such as interwiki links). Fred-Chess 15:21, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

  • As per above, I only go with requests from or supported by the local users. I have given bot status at de:, id:, nl:, no:, pl:, but not at the other languages you requested. - Andre Engels 10:08, 1 September 2005 (UTC)

The request is quite old and we had no further feedback from the editor. Perhaps should we archive this ? Anthere

Archive it, plz. -- ChongDae 06:46, 2 November 2005 (UTC)


Please give bot status to my bot (bg:User:Santa) (contribs) on Bulgarian wikipedia. Thanks, DCLXVI 01:52, 18 August 2005 (UTC)

Ongoing discussion is here: bg:Уикипедия:Разговори#Бот. Please wait for it to finish. --Glimz 18:56, August 22, 2005 (UTC)
Have you gained consensus yet? Datrio 10:05, 4 September 2005 (UTC)
Consensus has not been achieved so the bot status is not granted. Additionally, this user(name) has apparently left the project Sep.7 after the discovery of a very largescale copyright violations. Feel free to archive this request. Cheers, --5ko 01:43, 27 October 2005 (UTC)


I request a bot flag for cs:User:RCBot (bot announcement on this page as well). I'm supported by cs:Wikipedista:-jkb-, an admin on cs:wiki.

Quoted from de:Benutzer_Diskussion:-jkb-#RCBot:

The cs:wiki recommends to give a bot flag to RCBot (commons), it is ok for us. cs:Wikipedista:-jkb-, an admin on cs:wiki, -jkb- 15:38, 30. Okt 2005 (CET)

I want to run a pywikipedia bot to make some text replacement. Announcement: here. It would be the first bot at de.wikisource. Unfortunately there is not much of a community there in the moment.

Hello, I would like to ask if a program I wrote in C# and it is simple Windows application which does some automated tasks, if it IS a bot. For example on I used it to generate the pages for letters in Slovak alphabet, as it is something easy to generate with program.

But i have another purposes on it, for example imagine you have a wiktionary article on some word. Let it be 'word'. Somebody has written article about 'word', what does it mean, etymology and stuff and also has written for example 10 translations of word 'word'. It will create 10 'red' links. My program would go through that page and look for translations (like 'mot' in french or 'slovo' in slovak and will find that red links (for unexisting pages 'mot' and 'slovo' etc.) and craete simple pages that specify what language is that word from ('mot'->french, 'slovo'->slovak) and link back to original article 'word'.

This process won't be automatical, because the user of the program (me) will need to specify where to look for pages like this ('word'). So is this bot or not?

thanks Sedimin 21:17, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

This could be called a bot, but this really isn't the question here. Accounts which need a bot flag are these, which are making more then 1 edit per every, for example, 30 seconds. If you plan to run it manually and the changes will be made slower - by all means, go ahead, you don't need a bot flag for that. Datrio 14:57, 18 December 2005 (UTC)
ok, thanks for reply and explanation. Sedimin 20:27, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

I have asked Quistnix if he can run the interwiki bot on the nap.wiktionary. The idea is to make the Neapolitan wikipedia more visible.. Thanks, GerardM 21:09, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

PS I discussed it with Sabine :)

a quote from the top section of this page:
Please be sure you'll include all of the following info in your request:
  • The bot owner,
  • The bot account,
  • The Wiki project on which you ask for bot status,
  • A link to the local announcement page;
this time only the second and third point were made clear in fact: can you, or rather, the bot-owner himself, please add links to the bot owner- and the announcement page, both on nap. grtz, oscar 23:43, 26 November 2005 (UTC)
Actually, is the request on the nap wiktionary. The bot, and the owner are obvious. From the way the request is made the project is obvious. So I think all the requirements are met.. Thanks, GerardM 22:10, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

  • I would like to have a botflag for pt:User:RobotJcb on PT.wikipedia. I left a note in their Village Pump. Jcb 10:40, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
I don't know the policies on other wikipedias, but at pt: bots need community approval. This bot has not been approved yet (in fact, it just got presented minutes ago). Nuno Tavares 10:44, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
This looks like now there is. Jcb 15:46, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
Actually, that doesn't mean anything, but that your bot has been recognized as one, but still not accepted to run with a botflag (marcados versus não marcados). Please hang on, Jcb. What's the rush, anyway? retoric question. Nuno Tavares 20:47, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
What is your problem with my robot? Last night YOU blocked my robot without even trying to contact me in advance and without even trying to contact me afterwards. The summary of the block was: "unintroduced robot". Although the robot has been turned off you did not answer to my request to unblock my IP. So at the moment my IP is still blocked at PT without any reason. From somewhere else I introduced the robot in your village pump. It's normal to do that together with the bot flag request on meta. After that YOU personally 'disapproved' my robot. At other Wikipedias the community may decide thing like that, but at PT it seems that you decide it on your own. And then, the only reason you gave for your disapproval: "Disapprove. Deliver warnfiles at WP:CR. We have already an NL bot running with the flag set." How can that possibly be a reason? I am and IA.wikipedia user (and moderator) as well. If I introduce myself as an IA user with a robot it would be OK??? Like a steward said today in your village pump, that's completely nonsense. Jcb 22:11, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
Nonsense or not, and unlike what you suggest in this last message that I decide this kind of things on my own (I just stated my opinion there), there are procedures to be followed; otherwise the stewards here wouldn't need a discussion page. Anyway, this discussion shall flow on his own page, not here. I wonder why don't you discuss this at that page. BTW, your IP has been unblocked for days. To Stewards: please suspend this sole request until pt:community approves, there are policies being discussed there and Jcb is aware of that, unlike what he's trying to suggest here. Please read the suggested page for on-going development. Nuno Tavares 05:57, 13 October 2005 (UTC)
hi nuno, what is the state of things regarding the above? grtz oscar, nov 15 2005
